An interactive Smartboard lesson following Day 5 of "Brothers and Sisters." In this lesson your students will find synonyms and look for the correct capitalization on a test prep page, decode two syllable -er words, match pictures with -er words (spelling), find the topic, main idea, and details from part of the story (excerpt provided), draw conclusions about "Brothers and Sisters" with mini quiz, make generalizations with a class-made tally chart (combines math and reading), read and write high-frequency words and break each into syllables correctly, use exact verbs, and make corrections to a sentence. Each lesson includes pictures and many lessons include sentence frames to up your students' vocabulary and sentence structure. Cooperative Learning is embedded into many lessons to make learning more enjoyable and interactive. Lesson created by Kimberly Smith. Have fun!
